Mindset + Movements

Welcome to Mindset and Movements, evidence-based training for real life.  Here you will find physical training and education programs steeped in orthopedic and neurologic clinical wisdom. If you suffer from chronic pain due to repeat patterns of sitting, straining, aggressive exercising, or just moving through your busy day, Mindset and Movements can help rebuild your body's structure for proper alignment and healthy aging.


In our work we will weave together the importance of mindset, plasticity, and self-compassion in order to achieve physical and educational goals. As a doctor of physical therapy with a clinical specialization in orthopedics, the smart exercise programs you find here will emphasize moving safely in your fitness pursuits. Let's learn how to preserve the ecology of our function so that we can continue doing what we love. 

 

Training that protects the aging body, not degrades it.


How many times have you seen a sports athlete sidelined for months due to an injury? Or how many of you have a friend who loves running but complains she only has a year or two left in her knees? Perhaps even closer to home, how many of you have a movement practice that appears to be causing your body stress rather than relieving it? The truth is, we all do. 

As of yet, none of us have been educated through our fitness practices to protect and nurture our function. 


Practical Strength training classes are built on the following core concepts:

1) Change is created through compassion

2) Fitness is not related to how our bodies appear but how they function and feel

3) We can preserve our body's ecology through wise fitness practices

4) Solid movement choices are based on good biomechanical and biologic science

5) We transform and preserve our function through consistent and wise practice

Interested in learning more about the evidence based practices for cultivating improved health of your tissues and biomechanics that support rather than degrade your body?

Join our monthly group class, Practical Strength Foundations to get started on your journey.
